5 Best Tries - Day 1 of World Rugby U20

David Smith brilliant individual try - 2007 Air NZ Cup

David Smith brilliant individual try - 2007 Air NZ Cup

New Zealand's premier provincial rugby competition, the Air New Zealand cup, gets under way tomorrow as the weekend sees an assortment of matches, with no less than seven games taking place.

Title holders Auckland will look to continue their dominance this season, as last year saw them go unbeaten en route to the final against the Wellington Lions.

One of the tries of the tournament that contributed to their great season was this masterpiece from flying winger David Smith.

Reminiscent of Rupeni Caucau in his heyday, the way with which Smith breezed past defenders, changing direction and then throwing in the little step, was sensational to watch.

It's a classic, and one of the better tries you'll see as he gassed the Tasman team on the way to finishing a try that once again added to his pedigree, making him one of the most exciting wingers in New Zealand at the moment.

Unfortunately his Super 14 showing for the Blues this year wasn't quite up there with the best, but I'd say that we may yet see the name David Smith achieving higher honours in the future.
